Programme Highlights

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV航拍機) has been used widely for data capture. Photo and video captured by camera from UAV are the most effective way to display features or objects from side distance and inaccessible area. This will prevent surveyors working under difficult and dangerous area, which will reduce the costing on labour and enhance the efficiency of productivity. Engineering Surveyors could discover more reality to stakeholders from geospatial perspective (e.g. 3D point cloud model for BIM, or structure inspection without scaffolding, etc).


With a visual camera, site inspection and surveying by UAV becoming more cost effective and efficiency. Furthermore, by using a thermal camera, imagery display features such as crack on façade and water leaking by heat signature can be well defined and anticipate potential major degradations. With collision tolerant technology, difficult environment such as underground or confined space, box culvert, and high-rise utility plant could now be assessable and inspectable. This is a new era of surveying inspection. 


Language: Cantonese (supplemented with English Terms)

Speaker: Sr LAM Lit Yin


Sr LAM Lit Yin is the General Manager of D-Reality Consultancy Limited. He would like to implement photogrammetry and laser scanning to ordinary projects in order to accelerate the pace of land and engineering surveying and enrich the surveying field. He would share experience of applying photogrammetry technique into various projects and how the technology could integrate with BIM. Sr. LAM is also the Chairman of HKIES (The Hong Kong Institution of Engineering Surveyors) since year 2008.
